Description of the trail: The trail begins in the village of Nshkhark and passes through the sandstone paths of the Argichi river valley. You will enjoy this trail very much. The biking trail is located in the Gegharkunik and Ararat provinces of Armenia. The famous Silk Road which stretches from East to West, passed through Armenia in ancient times. The evidence of this is scene among the ruins of the 14th-century caravanserai (not included in this trail) found nearby. 2 hours riding out from the village of Nshkhark (2,300m), you will reach a height of 2,500m. You can view Mount Ararat from this height, above green meadows, valleys and the sun-lit image of the Argichi River. By the way, you must cross the river twice. While crossing the river you need to take off your shoes, as there is no bridge, but fortunately, the river is not deep. Starting from a height of 2,500m, going down the trail will lead you to the Khosrov State Reserve. Here you will see many different types of flora from the area and maybe even come across some wild animals. While leaving the Reserve, you may introduce yourself at the security post. Then you will ride for 10km via a paved road till the end of the trail. The trail ends at the village of Urtsadzor, in the Ararat province. The return path is from Urtsadzor. Technical specifications of the trail:The best time – from April-October, you can reach the place in 2hr.and 11min, by taxi,Cost-14,600-15,000AMD ©State Tourism Committee of RA
